The Slavic Studies program offered by Brown University focuses on three of the most commonly spoken Slavic languages: Russian, Czech, and Polish. Although closely related linguistically and geographically, Russia, Poland, and the Czech Republic followed different paths in history, culture, religion, arts, and politics.
Yet their histories are interrelated and exemplify both cultural cross-fertilization and often tumultuous confrontations that are connected with national aspirations and ambitions. They continue to be key players in the constantly changing political landscape of Central and Eastern Europe; their recent histories—most notably Poland and the Czech Republic joining of the European Union—reflect the tensions and hopes of all European countries.
Graduates with B.A. in Slavic Studies from Brown University will:
- Understand the history, politics, and expressive cultures of the Slavic world
- Acquire intermediate proficiency in Russian, Czech, Polish, or other Slavic language
- Develop sophisticated skills in close reading and textual analysis
